Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Piriformis syndrome is a disease characterized by pain, which occurs as a result of a Piriformis muscle pressing on the nervesciatic.Piriformis muscle is a muscle located in the buttocks, extending to the top of the femur. Piriformis muscle is involved in walking and lifting weights. So that patients will feel pain in the pelvic area, buttocks, or groin when walking, running, climbing stairs, sitting and squatting. The pain can be felt spread to the lower leg, according to the course of the sciatica nerve, which stretches from the lower back to each leg.
The treatment is through physiotherapy. Therefore, consult a medical rehab specialist. In addition, the doctor will provide drug therapy, such as painkillers, muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory corticosteroids if needed. Meanwhile, you can routinely apply cold compresses to the affected part of the house. It is highly recommended that you do not massage on the affected part. Because it can make the Piriformis muscle and sciatica nerve more depressed.
Thus hopefully useful.
